Runners-Up Award for Hethersett

Hethersett has been named runner-up in the Eastern Daily Press Pride in Norfolk Community Awards for villages and towns with populations of over 5,000. 

Hethersett won the award in 2006, but this year were just pipped by Aylsham. 

The annual competition is organised by the EDP newspaper in conjunction with Norfolk County Council. 

Hethersett was praised by the judges for its attempts to bring a widely spread community together. 

“The initiatives of the Hethersett Environmental Action Team and the work of schools have made a pleasant environment for residents,” said judge Susan Warr who is chairman of the Norfolk Federation of Women’s Institutes. 

Chair of Hethersett Parish Council Fred Watkins said: "This recognition is appreciated and will give encouragement to those local people, groups and schools who are working to improve our community. This autumn will see new initiatives to provide facilities for young people in Hethersett and further environmental improvements."
